Cuz being a basshead is too simp for even this cardboard simp. smily_headphones1.gif

Nah the QB2s has softer more balanced bass, not sloppier while these Pistons has big old mellow warm ROUND arse BASS, esp. in their mid bass hump which ruins it for me. Those NuFroce NE-700Xs has the same quantity but is sub bass focused hence they sound more clean with less congestion. These Pistons has better micro detailing i'll give them that but not much more. The NuForces is a much truer/ better audiophile worthy basshead iem, while these Pistons sounds like little league stuff. tongue.gif

You also sold me those KZ mirco ring ATH CKN70s lookalikes that you stated blows the QB2s away meng. Nuff said. G.G
I WIN!!! wink.gif

..and they were good deals too smily_headphones1.gif

What is the source you use? It must be taming the 100-200hz region or so, because the QB2 has a big boost there. It needed over a -5db EQ dip to be balanced. Goldenears shows it too.

Try the 3.5mm adapter at some point I posted earlier. It's very useful for iems with mics, as you don't have to pop them halfway out the socket, and sometimes gives better sound.

^ The Pistons @ $15 i paid was a better deal. :tongue:

 

ehhh my source is the Venturecraft amp via my crappy ipods. Also has a clip+ hooked to a FiiO E17 i seldom use cuz the E17 is kinda too warm for my liking. Nah my sources are damn clean, so that ain't it. That $15 venturecraft amp is crazy nice/ transparent without sounding dead flat and like i be saying one hell of a SLICK DEAL. Probably the best sounding/ most powerful amp for under $20 bar none cuz they originally sold for $200 retail!!! :eek: These Pistons are crazy warm no way around it, and ain't messing with no adapters cuz they work with all my sources so...... it is what it is meng.

The LQ Quadbeat 2s sounds better than these Pistons tbh cuz their bass is more balanced along with the rest of the sonic spectrum. These Piston ain't living up to their hype for me, cuz they give off that cheapo conventional bass cannon effect no matter which tips i use.

Now let's take this into perspective.

If he says they're bassy....

 

So did the troll eventually succumb to beryllium poisoning like we've all secretly wanted him to? Have those poorly mangled and mistreated ears finally met their maker? Will the demise of the corrugated flatboard finally herald the dawn of a liberated Head-Fi for future generations to come? Fnd out on next week's all-new episode of Scrubs, 10:00PM PST, right after the news.

ehhhh Twi-Hard much??? :rolleyes: Some people never fails......

 

I was just generous to give them a good home since they were doomed to be neglected. Plus the price was right. : P  

 

I am just a kind hearted head-fier meng, nuff said. So no need to tune in new week cuz there ain't gonna be no drama, that is UNLESS those K300Ks comes in. hoho Now we can FINALLY get the show rolling and it will be a good one fo' sho. :veryevil:

 

Yes these Pistons are warm/mellow and bassy, which kinda shocked me as well, cuz i did not expect them to be at this level tbh. Only Danny made those comparisons with the NuForce NE-700Xs so i was like ok they sound similar but from all the previous impressions that i assedly glanced over i didn't get the sense they were so........ :blink: 

post #21440 of 33032

It's official! I'm love the sound sig of the HP50. I've had these thing on for about four hours. No fatigue, the sound is getting better and better with each passing hour (tons of details), and these headphones are quite comfortable. Great value too.

LET US SEE THAT SEXCEE SQUARE BAND!!! : P

 

On a serious note, how is the overall comfort of the headband/ earcups??? Some have reported the cups were too shallow hence there were comfort issues.

Sounds disappointing, great. Maybe there's hope for you yet. I'm just happy that you can finally open up about your basshead problems, and it's great that you're showing some signs of change by being disappointed in something for being too bassy.

Do you know if the HP50 is available to audition at any chain electronics stores like as Best Buy?

^ ehhh the jokes on you then. I was never a basshead to begin with fool, just cuz i like bass emphasis with my music don't mean i like to be blasted with until my brain explodes. Why you think i stole invented the term Totalphile for, for funzies??? Nah Totalphile is the evolution/ revolution of that dusty audiophile term that will not compromise any aspect of the sonic spectrum for another and wants it all in spades. Hence in TOTALITY/ TOTAL immersion within the music without anything lacking nor missing whatsoever.

 

PREACHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! DAT TOTAL GOSPEL!!! :L3000: 

 

edit: so what i am tryin' to say is that i have standards ya' know. ;)

Okay, who here would honestly believe that you would have ever "invented" anything. Or that you would have "standards".

 

But seriously, maybe some hope that they would end up being okay. Just a little. Okay not that much. You should pass them along to Wayne or Nick or something if you don't like them that much.

Soundstage differences. The re700 wins by a hair, though it isn't fair since this is just one song, but it is for the moment. When I kept A/Bing them, I actually felt that the re700s kept the same imaging of the martins, but expanded the soundstage by at least 2 inches for the L and R sides.

 

More clarification? Just ask away
